I have been so slack with posts lately! Sorry! Life's been pretty hectic; got myself a new job, passed my driving theory, started my new job... a little mad but wonderful at the same time :)

So, because I've been so slack I'm doing a Nails of the Week post... just the nails I've had over the past week basically :)

I absolutely love this!! I found hidden at the back of a shelf in TK Maxx, a O.P.I set of a nail varnish and lip gloss, and this was the colour. It's from the Burlesque collection and it's Tease-y Does It. It's such a gorgeous colour! In different kinds of light it looks red, purple, brown, black... it's just amazing! For the Gold Gradient, I used 'Shimmy Shake' from Collection 2000.

The next one i did was Pastel Polkas. I wanted something a bit more dulled down, but still me! This look was really easy and fun to do, and would work with basically every colour going. I've used OPI's Alpine Snow, Teal from ELF and the pastel green is by Barry M... but i can't remember the name!
I bought a new top coat from Maybelline, salon professional extra shine blah... something, which i used on this and I have NO chippage what so ever! It fantastic! And the shine was soo pretty too! Would really recommend it!

I did have a go with my Halloween nails but then my lack of patience kicked in and i gave up! The pumpkin was just too much for me and i didn't like the others! Weren't as good as when I first did it so they came straight off! A shame really.... I went for something a little simpler! I got this gorgeous bright purple/pink from TK Maxx, it's from the brand Pixi in No.15 and i'm in love with it! It's not like a colour i've ever seen before! I got it for £2.99 and on the website it's £10! BARGAIN! For the black i've just used my Wah nail art pen and then filled it in with a black polish from Star Gazer.
This look could be used for so much over Halloween, I thought it was a pretty safe option!

Hope you like them, let me know what you think :) I'll do a post on my new polishes soon, I've bought so many in the past few week I think they deserve a mention!

Love & Peace xx

Hallowe'en Nail Art! Pumpkin!

Hey guys, I mentioned this in my last post, sorry it's such a bad photo, it was taken on my phone! I would have gotten a better one but by the time I got my camera I'd already ruined the nail! Just my luck...

It's soo cute! Definitely going to be doing these on my nails at some point! The orange is lush and glittery! My friend complained that there wasn't enough glitter in my other ones! haha

Hope you guys like it

O.P.I Shatter, turquoise

I have the most amazing sister! She went to New York last week and picked me up some amazing things! She knows me too well...

This is just a quick post on one of the things she got for me, the beautiful shatter polish by O.P.I in turquoise! I live in the UK and O.P.I polishes are really hard to come by where I am so I was thrilled when I got this! Over here it would cost at LEAST £10... she picked it up for $4!!!! OH MY GAHHHH!!!

I cannot wait till I got to Florida in March, Sooo much shopping is going to happen!

I was way too excited about this so I didn't have time to clean my nails up before I took the picture! In this photo I'm wearing it with 'Check Me Out', a corally pink from H&M. The combo is insane! Looking forward to using it in the winter, over a silver or pearly white, will look really cute!

Hallowe'en Nail Art!

First of all...Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I've had a lot on and have been majorly ill :(

However... HALLOWE'EN'S COMING! Wohoo!! Love it! I really can't wait, I'm such a big kid! I don't get to dress up this year however because no-one's having a party :( So I'm just going to do some awesome cool nail art instead! I'll celebrate in my own way ;)

So far these are the looks that I've got :D

Sorry for the Shuddy picture. And for only having one photo!
I LOVE these nails! I can't wait to try them out for hallowe'en! I'm going to do a couple of other looks, something with more glitter and more girly I think! I've also done a pumpkin which is wicked cool but I only have a photo of it on my phone... will try and add it at a later date :)

The first one I'm really disappointed with so lets forget about that one...
The second is a cute little devil!
The third is a mummy, and I think he's my favourite!
The forth is Dracula! (freaky ass book)
The fifth is Frankenstein! I kinda like him too... easiest to do as well!

These are soo easy to do! I found some photos online and some youtube videos so just browse around and I'm sure you'll be able to find anything you need to know to get these looks!

The only tools I needed to create these were a black nail art polish and a home made dotting tool! (pencil + needle)

Hope you guys try some nail art looks out! I wanna see them if you do!
